Wednesday is here again, which means a new week for new comics (BLACKWOOD, THE WILDS & THE REALM). If you are like me, you may still have a stack of comics that haven’t been read from last week, but how can anyone fault us for reading. Here is a list of books I will be picking up at my local comic shop.
Like many readers I try to budget my purchases, which can become difficult when there are so many quality books being published each week. So here are 5 titles to consider picking up this week.
BLACKWOOD #1 – $3.99

From the multi-Eisner award-winning creator of Beasts of Burden and the artist of Archie and Slam comes this supernatural fantasy about a magical murder in a sorcery school. When four teenagers with haunted pasts enroll in Blackwood College-a school that trains students in the occult-their desire to enhance their supernatural abilities and bond with others is hampered by an undead dean’s curse, ghosts in their dorm, a mischievous two-headed mummy-chimp, a plague of mutant insects, and the discovery of an ancient evil that forces our heroes to undergo a crash course in the occult for the sake of the world.

From coast to coast, once-vital technology has now been rendered worthless… No cars… No phones… No quantum bands?!? Without the high-tech gauntlets that bind them together, the world’s worst superhero team have 24 hours before they disintegrate into nothingness…
Now, stripped of their powers and unable to “klang,” can Quantum and Woody become the heroes they’ve always aspired to be and secure the streets of the nation’s capital…before time runs out?
Hey, hey, nobody invited these guys! Quantum and Woody come kicking and screaming into Valiant’s seismic summer crossover.
